About San Leandro

Landing in San Leandro is opportune since the City is right in the midst of a cultural and architectural evolution!

Besides being home to one of the oldest Motion Capture software companies – PhaseSpace – a new tech campus is building out innovation in this City that has one of the fastest Internet speeds available for businesses (100 Gigabytes per second).

Known for three of ­the best top four breweries in the East Bay, San Leandro is brewing up two more taprooms in the downtown area, becoming a true beer cluster City.

Five great Mexican Restaurants dot East 14th in Downtown San Leandro while a few blocks away is one of the most popular restaurants – Paradiso – recently reviewed by KQED’s Check Please.

San Leandro evokes the sense of a safe small town, though there are 86,000 people here. It is steeped in tradition and holds its annual Cherry Festival in high esteem, as San Leandro used to be called the “Cherry City,” due to so much acreage dedicated to Cherry orchards.

San Leandro is dedicated to the arts, including public art. Hot news is the relocation of a burning man sculpture created by Marco Cochrane, “Truth is Beauty.” It will be installed, near the BART station in San Leandro’s new Westlake Urban Tech Campus in the autumn of 2016. She’s big  – 55’ high, made of steel mesh, beautiful and has a question to ask: “What would the world be like if women were safe?” She will be illuminated by 2,500 LED lights. More on Truth is Beauty.

San Leandro has two museums (one historical and the other Railway) and the San Leandro Performing Arts Center and Curtain Call Performing Arts, The Historic Bal Theatre and the San Leandro Players Theater Group.

Visiting by water? The San Leandro Shoreline Park area has a marina with 462 berths, a boat launch ramp, two yacht clubs and an off-leash park for your dogs. The San Francisco Bay connects us all and we love the vibe!
